Very easy to use too.

It is very compact and a lot easier to bring along on vacation than the paperback dictionary.

If you love Scrabble, you have to try out this Scrabble electronic dictionary. It's wonderful....it makes playing the game much easier. Even a tabbed (book) dictionary isn't as good as this - just type in the word - press enter - you instantly see if it's a word or not, and if so, it'll define it. If it takes forever to tell you - that means it's not a word and it's finding the nearest word to your entry. There's some games and extras on it, but it does the job wonderfully!! I didn't pay retail, I got it on sale which I'm sure I'll never see again, but it's worth it even at retail price!

Very easy to use and your friends and family will thank you for it! It definitely saves time during the game!!

Verified Purchase
First- let me say; I have to give this a 4, I'm afraid the quality of the item is not the highest standard. It is beginning to have trouble pressing buttons, and giving all word possibilites. I think this is because we use it so much. I have used this item for about 5 months, anywhere from 2-3 hours a day! It is great for entering letters, and having the item (we call it "the brain") tell you all the available words. Can't play scrabble without it!

The Franklin Scrabble Companion (FSC) was priced fairly, and delivered promptly. A nice touch was the cloth bag with draw-string into which the FSC is stored when not in use. This product has a tendency to go into failure modes - this is the second one I've purchased and both products have this same tendency. However, there is a simple fix when this happens - depressing with a narrow point a button on the back always seems to work. In our Scrabble Club, the allowable words are changing; unfortunately, the FSC does not include these new words (eg., QI, FE, KI, ZA, ...). Not sure what Franklin's plans are to update the current model....

This would be a great idea if it were not out of date. This uses the 3rd edition Official Scrablbe Dictionary. The 4th edition came out in 2006. It does not have many words, such as "za" or "qi" in it. If there were an up to date version, I'd buy it.

We absolutely love our Scrabble "cheating machine." We play with our 13 year old son, and the "cheating machine" has taught him a lot of new words. When friends play with us, they often start out scorning our machine and us for having it (hence the source of its name). But by the time the game's half over, they're grabbing it, too, to confirm unusual two-letter words and for challenges. We occassionaly play the games which has improved my own Scrabble game. We've had to reset it a couple times (easily done) but have had no other problems in the past 18 months we've owned it.

I had been browsing the web looking at various word games for my nieces aged 6 and 11. I wanted one that would help in building their vocabulary and at the same time offer some fun. Finally I decided to buy Franklin Scrabble Companion. My nieces vocabulary has improved a lot. The electronic dictionary is great and it also prevents my older niece from taking advantage of the younger one who doesn't know to use a dictionary. My sister and brother-in-law also got hooked to the game and enjoy it immensely. Playing scrabble has become sort of a routine in their house that they look forward to eagerly.

My sister said that the Franklin Scrabble Companion is also a great boon on the nights that they entertain as it prevents the kids from making a ruckus, since they are very engrossed in it. Since the games can be played at different skill levels it never gets boring. It is a perfect gift that can be given for birthdays and other occasions and I highly recommend it to one and all irrespective of age.

This is a very valuable product for anyone who wants to improve their Scrabble(R) game. For checking definitions (not that serious scrabblers always care about that) it is much quicker than leafing through a dictionary. The Jumble Game is particularly valuable when set at the higher level for seven letter words. However, don't buy this product UNTIL Franklin updates it with the new Scrabble word list! Email Franklin at service@franklin.com and tell them you might be interested IF they would do the update!
